>desktop app is a glorified webpage that requires signal to be open on your phone to work
no thanks

the mobile app is great but without a great companion desktop app it's all for naught

and thus the search for something better than iMessage continues...

The desktop app is also early beta mate.

>>52625293
It was down for me earlier today. I guess they're doing rolling downtime on their servers.

This.

Time to switch to Tox. One of the cool things about it is the fact that it can never go down.
>>
>>52629910
Still under heavy development, and I'm not very fond of using development versions. But please continue using it, reporting bugs, and maybe I'll be using it when it's stable thanks to brave test subjects like you.

>>52625293
Don't worry m8, they are just doing the weekly snapshot for the NSA, it will be back soon.
Good goy.

Shilling the piece of shit that is tox developed by people who can't into proper Privacy and encryption and dismiss findings of exploits. Yes. Tox is good.
>>
>>52630411
The media's shilling Whatsapp really hard right now. I wonder why?
>>
>>52630502
Please do point me to one of these 'findings of exploits'.
>>
>>52629910
I'm using antox daily, at the moment the audio test build. It works great, just drains battery as shit. And the data drain is hard.
But making calls and sending Text messages and pictures is working great.

Mainly i use conversations as an alternative to Whatsapp. In conversations i have everything i need.

FUCK OFF NORMIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES

Please do point me to a source for unreported rapes. Just because they're not reported doesn't mean they're not there.
>inb4 some 2015 rebuttal about ad-people or strawmen
>>
>>52625349
They are facebook.
>>
>>52630913
Anon claims tox devs have dismissed findings of exploits, which means they must have been reported.

I'm not sure what 'unreported rapes' have to do with this but I find it very inappropriate of you to mention it.

Signal is worse than both WhatsApp and telegram due to its Google play services dependency.

>whatsapp has a nice black/dark theme for window phone but only blinding white for others.
Turning on that blinding light during the night...

It works with microG though.

No Google account needed either!

>>52632393
Is actually fine. You're just overreacting.
>>
>>52634780
Not for a chat application that aims at privacy it isn't. You tech illiterate ignorant fool, you know nothing.

>proprietary software a hard dependency
>with full system privileges
>of a program supposed to provide secure communication
Literally impossible to be sure it doesn't scrape your communication to Google and beyond if you're using the nonfree malware on your device.

Use microG as that other anon said, then it works fine AND you have assurance of exactly what it does and does not send through Google's, or anyone else's, servers.

>>52632393
It has a fork that works without gapps.
>source
Me. I'm using it on my gappless phone.
>>
>>52635543
The websockets fork only works for the texts IIRC. Some means to access GCM is required for the calls capability.
>>
>>52635565
Iirc yes. But I don't care desu. At least the texts work.

I was surprised to find out that they
a) don't offer a download on their website for the apk, its just the link to apple and android app store
b) that it actually depends on gapps. I didn't expect that desu. But that's (like you said) because if their call feature.

Also requires your phone number to sign up. Threema, while proprietary, can be used without using your phonenumber.
